Financial Company – 1700 K Street

Washington, DC

70,000 SF

Inspired by the surrounding neoclassical monuments and marble landscaping, a sculptural palette enhances this financial company's consolidation.
This financial company consolidated two locations onto the 8th and 9th Floors at 1700 K Street, NW to accommodate seven separate lines of business.

The renovation includes approximately 130 offices and 120 workstations, conference rooms, break rooms, reception area, and focus rooms across the two floors totaling approximately 70,000 RSF.

Inspiration was derived from the neoclassical monuments, marble landscaping, intersection and National Mall of Washington, DC, referencing fluting, concrete, bronze, terrazzo and brass.

A neutral, sculptural and textured palette was used. Integrated design elements for counters, islands and freestanding rooms were employed, which relate to monuments and landmarks of the city.

The main hub area is located on the 8th floor just to the right of the elevator lobby. The curvilinear sculptural wood elements direct the visitor towards the heart of the office, where all avenues intersect. This is where the open space of “Monuments”, such as café, biophilia, multi-purpose room, bar, etc. are located.
